I am talking to a buddy about picking up his first firearm. He intends to get a pistol for CCW, and is in the market for polymer.
My question is are pistols with a hammer, DA/SA safer to own than a striker? I have heard a few stories about glocks and XD's having ND and AD.
I know it would all depend on the competence of the individual. However, would it be wise to suggest a pistol with a hammer, and safety to a newbie?
I have only owned a Springfield Mil-Spec, and my PX4. So I can not speak from expirence.
